Biography by Hal Erickson

Perry King received his acting training at Yale and Juilliard. Entering films in 1972 with Slaughterhouse Five, the handsome, flinty-eyed King went on to play roles ranging from menacing to passive in such films as The Lords of Flatbush (1974), The Wild Party (1975) and Lipstick (1976). King's plentiful work has included the part of Rory Armagh in the 1976 miniseries Captains and the Kings, starring roles in the weekly series Quest (1981), Riptide (1985) and The Trouble With Larry (1993), and a wealth of made-for-TV movies, among them Foster and Laurie (1975), Golden Gate (1981), The Hasty Heart (1983) and Helen Keller: The Miracle Continues (1984). Perry King is the grandson of fabled literary editor Maxfield Perkins.
